An aerial view of Totem Lake Boulevard reveals two of the Totem Lake Gateway's most prominent features: a rebuilt roadway and an 11-foot-wide sidewalk.

Kirkland earned a $4.83 million grant in November 2017 from Washington’s Transportation Improvement Board that helped fund a series of improvements on sections of Totem Lake Boulevard and 120th Avenue Northeast. Those improvements restored the sections of roadway that were settling and created wide sidewalks. The project also installed lighting that complements the pedestrian plazas and walkways created by the Village at Totem Lake.
